History of GF Piping Systems
Georg Fischer is proud of it's long history of success with roots going back more than 200 years when Johann Conrad Fischer laid the foundation. What began 1802 with a small copper smelting plant and development works for new alloys, has since developed to the global industrial concern as we know it today. Towards the end of 19th century, the company first began with producing the long-standing malleable cast iron fittings, thereby creating the basis of today's division GF Piping Systems. This day, it has become established on the market as a leading supplier of piping systems for the safe and reliable transport of liquids and gases. Despite the constant change, innovational strength and customer orientation remain the defining values for GF Piping Systems up to today.
